he went along with it. the party of lord george. he went along with it. now, now, he hasn't kept his promise on all of us being in it together. two years ago, he said by 2015 "we will have balanced the books." can he explain why he has so badly failed to keep that promise? >> let me give you the figures. in 2009 there was 16,000 people earning more than a million. in 2010 when the rate went up, this plummeted to 6,000 people. therefore, because of his election gamut 50 p it cost the country seven billion pounds. when is he going to realize, tax rate is about raising money not about punishing success. that is what we need him to understand. that in terms of the deficit, we have cut the budget deficit by 25%. you will get an update of the progress in a minute. how on earth, can you deal with a borrowing problem when pledging to borrow more? >> let's be clear, mr. speaker, about his answer on 50 p. the answer to the problem -- the answer to the problem of tax avoidance is to give the people doing it a tax cut.
